You will need:

1 egg

1/2 scoop natural protein powder (my preference is the Nature Valley Soya Protein Isolate one from Holland and Barrett)

1/4 tsp baking powder

Drizzle of honey or pure maple syrup (just make sure it’s 100% natural! None of those ‘desert’ syrups / golden syrups)

Dash of water / almond milk

Beat your egg, and mix in all of your other ingredients thoroughly in a mug you’re happy to put in the microwave. Whisk briskly with a fork until smooth (some lumps are normal!) and like cake batter. Microwave for approx. 3 minutes. 

Once your microwave cake has risen, tip your mug upside down and you’ll have an instant sponge.

Serve with clementine slices and a sprinkle of cinnamon, some lemon zest or a smear of peanut butter.
